Past Life Tarot Reading Part I
Here is The Special Past Life Card Reading that I have designed. Unfortunately it will not be possible to conduct this Reading in the same manner I did mine under hypnosis. For a start, it will be you asking yourself the questions and also providing the answers. However, if you apply yourself to it with great intention, and allow yourself ample time, you should be able to piece together a lot of information and glean much wisdom from it.
There are Two Parts to This Reading with the Second Part being Optional should you require further information or deeper insight. There are also several approaches to doing this Reading. You can do as little or as much as you are able to cope with. You can also alter and add to it. The only thing that will hold you back is lack of imagination and time. You really can go as far with this Past Life Reading as you wish.
Make sure the Cards are thoroughly cleansed beforehand and that you have also carried out your own Energy Cleansing and Psychic Protection as per your own methods or the methods given in Lesson 2 – Psychic Protection
Take your time with this Reading as you will be compiling information that will then take time to analyse and assimilate. Do not expect it all to be spelled out to you clearly and precisely. Like all Tarot Readings you will have to call on your intuition, imagination and powers of reasoning and deduction to formulate a story and running order of events. It is up to you to interpret the results. Because you will be using The Major Arcana on several occasions, it is advised to record on paper, or on your computer, each Card drawn so that you can begin to see Your Past Life begin to take shape before you. Do not try to hold all this information in your head as it will be impossible to analyse or remember. Move Slowly and do not try to rush The Reading. You will have to Mull over all the Cards drawn. If you are unsure about what Cards mean then go to the Section that Lists all the Cards by clicking here.
If you intend using this Reading on your own clients then it will take much longer than a normal Reading so you will have to charge accordingly and explain your reasons. I do suggest you get used to working with this Reading on yourself before trying it out on Clients.

- All 22 Major Arcana Cards – I Deck. This Deck will be used several times and should be cleansed for each use, and all Cards returned to Upright Position before Shuffling. You will be Reversing some Cards again but you want a Clear Deck each time to start from .
- The 16 Court Cards – Stack these not in their Suits but in their Ranking as in all Pages together, all Knights together, all Queens together and all Kings together. You should have Four Decks of Four Cards. Each time they are used, all Cards should Cleansed and returned to their Upright Position before Shuffling. You will be Reversing some Cards again but you want a Clear Deck each time to start from .
- Separate the Four Suits from Ace to Ten in their Individual Suits of Wands, Cups, Swords, Pentacles – 4 Decks of Ten Cards each. Each time they are used, Cleanse them first and then return them to their Upright Position before shuffling. You will be Reversing some Cards again but you want a Clear Deck each time to start from .
- My Sample Past Life Reading can be found by scrolling to the bottom of Page. Please Read all details below first before going to Sample Past Life Reading.
What you will be aiming to do is:
- You now need to determine which Gender you were, so to do this shuffle all the Kings and Queens together and then draw One Card. You do not have to Reverse any Cards. If it is a Queen it suggests you were Female, if a King it suggests you were Male.
- Your Family Background. What type of Mother and Father Figure you had in your Past Life. This will give you an idea on how you were influenced as a child, and will also give explanations as to how you developed and conducted your life in later years. Other information about the personalities of any siblings involved can also be determined if you wish to gain further insight into your Past Life. In this Reading, we will only be concentrating on You and your Parental Figures. Feel free to investigate any siblings if you so wish.
- For your Father Figure you will be shuffling all The Kings together and Reversing some as you go. Draw just One Card and note whether it is Upright or Reversed.If Reversed, it may mean your Father was absent or died.If Reversed, pull another couple of Cards from either the Major Arcana, Swords Suit or both, to determine if the personality was Reversed or whether the Father Figure died or was absent.
- For Mother Figure shuffle all The Queens together reversing some as you go. Draw One Card and note whether it is Upright or Reversed. If Reversed, it may mean your Father was absent or died.If Reversed, pull another couple of Cards from either the Major Arcana, Swords Suit or both, to determine if the personality was Reversed or whether the Mother Figure died or was absent. Analyse the combination of your Father and Mother Figure and the Relationship that may have existed between them. What sort of parents would they have been? Take Notes
- Your Personality. All The Court Cards will be used for this part. What you’re looking for is information on what your personality was like firstly as a young child and teenager, so you will shuffle all The Pages together, Reversing some as you go. Make a note of the Page Drawn and whether it is Upright of Reversed. What does this tell you?
- Next you want to know what you were like as a young adult so all The Knights will be shuffled together in the same manner as The Pages. Gender associations are irrelevant here. However, if your gender was female, dilute some of the more extreme aspects of the Knight Personality Descriptions. You will have to use your imagination for this. Make a note of The Knight Drawn and Whether it is Upright or Reversed. What does this tell you? Did your personality change much from your childhood? If you have gone from an Upright Page to a Reversed Knight, you need to find out why? What happened? You will be using the Minor Arcana for that purpose.
- Next you want to find out what your personality was like as a mature adult/parent/husband/wife etc. If your gender was Female shuffle only The Four Queens remembering to Reverse some as you go. Draw one and take a note of which Queen it is and whether it is Upright or Reversed. If your Gender was Male, then do the same but with The Four Kings. Take notes.
- Your Partner/Wife/Husband. If you were Female, shuffle all the Kings, Reversing some as you go. Select One Card and Note whether it is Upright or Reversed. If you were Male, select all The Queens and follow the same format as given for The Kings. You also have the option of adding all The Knights for either Gender if you Wish. If you wish you can shuffle all Four Knights, Four Queens and Four Kings together to obtain the Personality of your Partner/Wife/Husband. If your selection falls Reversed, it may also suggest that you had no partner or that they died. You must pull extra Cards from both The Major Arcana and Swords Suit to ascertain this.
Note – What sort of relationship do you think you would have had? Do you think you were suited to each other? Do you think you were happy? To Find out if you were happy, pull One or Two Cards from the Cups Suit after shuffling thoroughly and Reversing some. This should give you information as to the nature of your relationship and how strong it was.
You now have a general view of how your Personality formed over that Life Time. You may find that you went from Upright to Reversed or Vice Versa. This will have been as a result of life experiences that changed and altered you as you journeyed through that Life Time along with the external influence of people; family, friend and partners. Your life may have started fine but something may have happened to turn you sour, unhappy or angry. You may also find that you stayed consistent throughout your life time and this in itself tells a lot. You might also have changed Suit, and again this is down to life experiences and the influences of others along with having to conform to rules and regulations of the day. This all leads to revealing interesting facts about your Past Life. It is up to you to piece it together.
It is important at this stage to view your Family Background and Personality together as you may find some co-relations, connections, links and explanations for the Personality Type you were, or developed into. Take notes of all these associations. If you had a partner, examine any similarities they may have had to your parents. Similar traits or personality types in the negative or positive.
- Now Establish who you were in Your Past Life. This may be your Occupation, Your particular Lifestyle or just how you Conducted your Life. You will be using The Major Arcana Deck for this part. Shuffle all 22 Cards Reversing some as you go. Draw just One Card. Whether it is Upright or Reversed will give you an indication of how successful your Life was. Check The Sample Occupations/Lifestyle from The List Below if you need help. Take notes of this Card and any observations or thoughts you have on it. Compare it to your Family Background Information and Your Personality as you matured. Are there any co-relations or connections as to why you may have chosen a particular Occupation or Lifestyle? Take notes of any observations, theories or concepts you may have on this.
- Your Soul Purpose for that Life Time. The Major Arcana Deck will be Selected once more for this information and only One Card will be pulled. I have given examples of the possibilities of Soul Purposes for all The Major Arcana Cards. The list is by no means complete so please add to it. Compare your Soul Purpose Card with the Card drawn for your Occupation or Life Style. Are there any connections or links or are they totally opposed and contradictory? Compare also with your Personality Cards. Can you see any potential connection between them?
- Were you successful? Did you Achieve your Soul Purpose? The Major Arcana Deck will be used for this purpose again. Shuffle the 22 Cards of The Major Arcana, remembering to Reverse some as you go. When you are ready, place the Deck on the table in front of you and start turning the Cards over sideways one after another making sure to keep their correct orientation. What you are looking for is The Judgement Card and The World Card. Most importantly, you are looking to see if they are Upright or Reversed and also how close to the top of the Deck The World Card is and How Close to the Bottom of the Deck, The Judgement Card is. If The Judgement Card appears Upright quite quickly, near the top of the Deck, it indicates that you heeded the inner call quite late in life and followed your Soul Path or Purpose from that stage. It may not have given you the time to achieve your Soul Purpose, and any unfinished work would be carried over into a Future Life Time. However for many Evolved Souls they can manage to transform their lives quite late in life and fulfil their Destiny before they depart this Earth.
- Further down the Deck and still Upright suggests you found your True Calling and set off on your Path much earlier on and had some time to achieve your Soul Purpose. You may have had to change your life in order to follow it. However, it does not mean that you managed to achieve your Ultimate Goal, as anything could have happened to knock you off your True Path or Calling.
- The Judgement Card appearing quite close to the bottom of the Deck suggests that you started to Follow your Spiritual Path or Soul Purpose quite early in life. This may be as a result of a life changing experience early on in life, the influence of your Family Background or the simple fact that you very nearly made it in your Previous Life Time, and so were off to a good start in your next.
- Should Judgement be Reversed anywhere in the Deck, it is a sign that you did not heed, or ignored the Path you should have followed. There may have been external reasons for this but on a Soul Level, you were totally responsible for this. You will have to come back to re-address this.
- The World appearing Upright is the Ultimate Card confirming that you achieved what you came into this world to do. You completed your journey as planned whether you left the physical at an early or late stage. Having The World Card appear Upright very close to the Top of the Deck and The Judgement Card appear very close to the bottom of The Deck would give an indication of being a more Evolved Soul. You had a very clear vision of your Soul Purpose from a very early stage and pursued it relentlessly. You entered that Life-Time knowing exactly why you were there and what you had to do, but you would have had to work hard to achieve it. It would not have been easy.
- Having a Reversed World would suggest that unfortunately you didn’t quite make it, and that you still have some unfinished business to conclude in this Life Time or your next. If The Upright World Card is toward the Top of the Deck, you succeeded but not without difficulty and at times, terrible struggle or resistance. You may have fallen down several times, but managed to pick yourself up and kept going. Well done. The Upright World appearing near the bottom of the Deck or in the Middle suggests Lucky You. You had it all sussed from Day One but your Soul Purpose may have been to live a hard life for a long time so it is hard to say whether you would have considered yourself lucky or not.
- Having an Upright Judgement and a Reversed World can suggest that you indeed answered the inner call but it may have been at a later stage in your life. You may not have had enough time to successfully complete your Soul Purpose in that Life Time but should have no trouble doing it in this Life Time as you were already on the right path.
- Both Reversed Judgement and The World suggest you lost your way and will need to re-visit the Spiritual Lessons set for that particular Life Time. This does not necessarily mean in this Life Time as it may be postponed until a further one.
- The Next Stage of The Past Life Reading is to Establish what happened throughout your life to you and to those around you. You will be using all 40 Minor Arcana Cards for this purpose. The Cards should be separated into their Four Suits from Ace to Ten and each Suit Shuffled well, while Reversing a few as you go. Remember to hold well the intention of the information you seek. So you will be looking for the following:
How your life progressed. Cards will be selected from The Minor Arcana Cards in each Suit to determine how you lived your life, the events that shaped it and how it ended. The Wands will yield information as to how active and ambitious you were, your personal power, what you were doing, whether you travelled much. The Cups will tell of your emotional life; your relationships, love, marriage and personal happiness. The Swords of course will give us information about the difficulties, stresses, conflicts you were involved in but also how educated and intelligent your were. The Pentacles will give us important information about your financial affairs; whether you were well off or poor and your attitude to work and the material side of life.
Together the Four Suits will give us the details of your life in the early years, mid years and later years. I suggest you pull Three Cards from Each Suit for this purpose, setting the intention with each Card drawn the information required of it. For example, you are drawing the Second Card from the Cups Suit. You set the intention that this Card will yield information about your emotional state/relationship status during the mid period of the particular Past Life you are doing the Reading on. It is very important that you hold clear your intentions at all times and try not to ask too much at the one time. Should you be confused you can draw extra Cards for Clarification.
Note – If you wish you can use all Ten Cards in each Suit establishing which Stage Each Card Drawn Represents. For Example Card Ace to 3 could be the Early Stages, Card 4 to 7 could represent the Mid Stage of your Life and Card 7 to 10 The Latter Stage of your Life.
- Lastly, you wish to know what your Personality was like when you died. This may be the same as the Personality Drawn for the Latter Stage of your Life or it may have altered again. Some times a hardened personality mellows as the end of life draws close, and sometimes a once kind and friendly personality becomes sour or bitter at the end of their days. To discover if your Personality remained the same or changed, you will once again be drawing from The Court Cards for your particular Rank. If you were male you will be shuffling the Kings, if you were female, you will be shuffling the Queens. Remember to Reverse a couple as you shuffle to determine the true personality.

Do not be disheartened by this as this is still a very Positive Card and shows that you were only slightly off the path and should be able to get it right the next time round. You may have fallen at the last hurdle or fear of success held you back from pushing yourself forward. The Talent and happiness is there for the taking the next time round if you have the courage to make the journey once more.

- Gender – Male
- Father Figure – King of Swords Reversed – Punishment, Severe, Overly Harsh, Unforgiving, Cruel, Abusive, Lack of Freedom, Violent, Vicious, Control Freak, Absent/Died
Note – Because Father Figure Reversed, he might have died so pulled another Card to try to determine one way or another. The Card was The Reversed Emperor. A Father Figure Card for sure. Could possibly have died but personality similar to Reversed King of Swords. Decided to pull two more Cards again from the Major Arcana Deck. The World Upright and The Reversed Magician. Okay, my gut feeling immediately is no, he stayed in the world, and the Reversed Magician just makes him even more awful and corrupt. I don’ think he was a nice man at all but I do know more about him now. He was a man who held great power, maybe a leader. He certainly was in charge of more than just his family. I get a feeling he may have been involved in Military, a Military Leader possibly but not a very nice one. He would have been heartless and lacking in emotion. He may have used his power unwisely and for his own gain. The Reversed Magician adds a corrupt, sinister and merciless side to him. It looks like he may have stopped at nothing to get what he wanted, and for him the end justified the means. He would have been a man to fear far and wide.
- Mother – Queen of Wands – Strong Female Influence, Bright and Positive Presence, Enthusiastic, Involved in Everything, Possibly worked, Maybe a woman ahead of her time, could have owned a business, Fearless, Defensive and protective of her offspring, Intolerant of weakness in her offspring, very active person, Would have expected a lot of her children, Very intuitive, Liked to travel, A natural Witch, Great Fun,
Notes – Here is an interesting combination. I feel that there is a possibility that this marriage was arranged. They certainly are not suited and I cannot see what the attraction would have been. He would have been way to serious and cold for her personality. As a Queen of Wands she may have come from a powerful background or family of her own. In her, we have a very strong woman with a man who is difficult , harsh and severe. Even though she has strong leadership abilities and can be very domineering, she is positive and fun, while he is negative and clinical. He certainly would have asserted his position of Power in the Household but The Mother may have defied him whenever she could and had her own ways of getting what she wanted. There would have been a battle of wills being played out constantly. Being a Wand she would hate to have to back down or give in to his demands or orders. She would not have been as afraid of him as others might have been. If she came from a powerful family then she would always use that as her bargaining tool. She would have certainly have asserted herself too, and there may have been power struggles between them with horrendous rows and arguments. He may have even locked her up for days on end to punish her for what he would have considered insubordination. This would just have strengthened her resolve. He probably treated his family as he did his soldiers serving under him. I do not get the feeling that this couple got on well and I really feel this was an arranged marriage. I think also that he was much older than her. He would have done his best to beat her adventurous and lively spirit out of her. I doubt he succeeded. She would have protected her children as much as possible from his vicious behaviour. She may have secretly planned to get away at some stage. I get a sense of loathing from her and a sense of determination to tame the shrew from him. She may have taken lovers as there would have been no sexual connection between the two other than her having to perform her wifely duties. She would have tried to exert her influence over her children in an attempt to make them more like her, and also allies of hers.
Personality as I Grew
- Page – Reversed Page of Swords – Defensive, Argumentative, Aggressive, Hostile, Malicious, Sharp Tongue, Psychologically Dysfunctional, Suicidal Tendencies, Learning Difficulties, Mental Confusion, Ungrounded, Clinical, Cynical, Sceptical, Unjust, Unlawful, Criminal, Delinquent Trouble Maker, Spy, Assassin, Vicious, Paranoia, Suspicion, Attack, Violent, Lack of Intelligence, Speech Problems, Childhood Issues, Anxiety, Stress, Worry
Note – A direct result of my Father’s influence and attitude towards me. My Past Life Character would have been intimidated and verbally abused by his Father. Definitely physically abused as in severe punishment and beatings for the simplest of things. His Mother would have tried to make up for this wherever she could and would have tried to undo any damage the Father was doing. She would have encouraged him to be strong and to not let his Father’s attitude and behaviour get to him. I think he would have hero worshipped his Mother which would have made his Father even nastier to him. He would have to have found ways of dealing with it as a child and young adult. It would either make or break him.
- Knight – Knight of Wands Upright – Young Adult/Student, Restless, Personal Freedom, Impatient, Hasty, Ambitious, Fearless, Warrior, Hero, Courageous, Brave, Dramatic, Fiery, Intense, Forthright, Direct, Adventurous, Traveller, Maverick, Trail-Blazer, Independent, Active, Healthy
Note – At last, I have come of age and am now considered a man, regardless of what my Father thinks. I have my own rights now and have definitely benefited from my Mother’s influence. I have her family blood running through my veins and want to be one of them. I get the feeling I want to make a difference in the world and after years of suppression and restriction from my Father, I am eager and impatient to start my own life. I also want to get away and as fast as possible. However, I feel that it may have been part of my duty to join the army and fight whatever wars were going on at the time. Even though my Mother would worry about me, I believe she was proud and was happy for me to happy and doing what I wanted for a change.
- King – King of Wands Upright – Strong, Ambitious, Business Owner, Leader, Power, Fearless, Courageous, Strong Influence, May have Inspired you, Very Active, Very Physical, Definitely In Charge, Would have expected a lot of his Children, Not terribly Tolerant, Great Father though and would have been a lot of fun when things were going his way
Note – Delighted to see this as here we have a mature adult who is positive and making a difference in the world. He is a strong leader and is loved by his followers and people. This is not to say he is a push over or an easy touch. No he is a tough, experienced and forceful man who is used to getting his way but he is fair and honest and forthright. He is both protector and defender and has definitely matured into his Mother’s Bloodline. He is definitely in charge but approachable and is open-minded. I would think he and his Father, if he is still alive, have very little to say to each other and are probably enemies and openly dislike each other. I would say that his/my mother, has to deal with the wrath of my father but there is a possibility at this stage he may have passed on and she would have gained her freedom or be under my protection. If you wish, you can try to ascertain by using either The Major Arcana or Minor Arcana (Swords). Use both if you wish, pulling one Card from each while asking the Question as to whether your Father is still alive at this stage. You can do the same for the Mother Figure too if you require that information.
- Queen of Wands Reversed – Overbearing, Bitchy, Controlling, Difficult, Forceful, Demanding, Not very Motherly, Not at Home much, No Fun, Possibly suffered from nerves or stress. Worked herself to exhaustion. Absent/Died
Note – Okay, did I take up with a woman who I thought was like my mother only to find out that she had none of her outstanding and wonderful qualities? There doesn’t appear to be a sense of romance or love here. If The Knight was gaining power and position she may have married him because of her hunger to share that power. She would not have had the same principles as his mother. She would have manipulated her position with The Knight of Wands to exert her own power over others. I must remember that as The Knight of Wands I may have travelled a lot and been away from home. My partner may not have liked this aspect and was possibly jealous or suspicious of any other women I would have been in contact with. Being The Knight of Wands she probably had just cause. Again, this may have been an arranged marriage or The Reversed Queen of Wands may suggest that I did not commit to any woman in particular and possibly had many who did not have a problem with my behaviour. I want to know more so I pull a Card from the Cups Section to find out if I was happy with my relationship or marriage? I pull The Reversed Two of Cups which confirms my suspicions. We were not happy, not suited, not faithful and yet again, the possibility of an arranged marriage or no marriage at all. I think she may have been more an enemy to me than a partner. If it was an arranged marriage, she may have been placed with me to report back to her family or spy. She may have been too close to some of my enemies or possibly having an affair with one of them. I would say she was underhand and devious. I was definitely closer to my mother and this may have caused a problem should my partner wanted to have total rights over that intimacy. She may have seen her role as insignificant and may have tried to gain closeness but I feel that I would have turned to my Mother as I had always done. This may have been a complicated situation if I was married. I may have sabotaged the potential happiness of my relationship. I may be the one who was totally responsible for its failure.
If I wanted more information on my relationship/marriage with this Reversed Queen of Wands I could use The Minor Arcana Ace to 10 of each Suit. Shuffle each Deck asking the Question as to the nature of The Relationship. Then lay them out from the top of deck one after another so that there are four lines in a row in their respective Suits. They should tell a story of The Relationship on every level. Draw one Major Arcana Card from a Cleansed and Shuffled Deck to lay alongside these Cards. Remember always to Reverse some while Shuffling.
Occupation/How I Lived My Life/Life Style
- The Chariot (VII) Upright – Military, Battle, War, Warrior, Soldier, Victor, Courageous, Champion, Conqueror, Leader, Driver, Hero, Master, Traveller, Overcame Big Obstacles and Challenges, Moved Forward In Life, Determined to Succeed, Expert Horse-Handler.
Note – The Chariot as my Occupation and The Knight of Wands link well together as they speak of strong masculine power, battle, fortitude, courage and Leadership. The Chariot and Knight of Wands are both seen as Heroes and people who were determined to succeed in life and overcome any challenges that came their way. They both have the same need to exert control over certain aspects of their personalities. The Knight of Wands to control his Fire; temper, impulsiveness and impatience. The Chariot to learn to exert control over his emotions. The Chariot, Knight of Wands, The Reversed King of Swords as The Father Figure, and also me drawing the Reversed Emperor, I believe the three link to a Military Background of some sort.
- Emperor – To Develop your Masculinity, To be A Strong Leader, To be a Good Father, To Learn to Take Control of Your Own Life, To Live by your Own Rules and not Constantly by others, To develop your own Opinions, To Learn to find The Correct Balance between Control and Force, To Lead by Example and not by Threat, To be Fearless and Courageous, To Protect and Defend your Family/Beliefs/Position, To Be Honest and Fair, To be Someone who can Be Trusted and Respected for their Strong Principles, Standards and Morals.
Note – Here we have The Upright Emperor re-enforcing all the aspects of The Knight of Wands and The Chariot once more. Strong Leadership, morals, principles, authority, courage, protector, defender. He also has to find the balance between control and force. We know that both The Emperor and The Knight of Wands if they fall Reversed can become tyrants, bullies and dictators. We saw that with his Father Figure, The Reversed King of Swords, Reversed Emperor and Reversed Magician. It’s a fine line that separates them. It all comes down to Power and how addicted to it they are likely to become. Power can be constructive, but in the wrong hands, such as The Reversed King of Swords, The Reversed Emperor and The Reversed Magician, it can be ultimately destructive. It certainly looked like I was following the right Path with The Upright Knight and King of Wands in my personality make-up, but how successful was I in achieving my goals, to become The Upright Emperor? With such Masculine Energy and Power could it have gone to my head? Coming from a background with a controlling, aggressive and often cruel father, could some of his traits have developed in me as I grew? Could my mission have been to put right or undo the damage my Father, The Reversed King of Swords had done by been determined not to follow his path and influence? Did I want to be beloved by my people and family and not feared like he was. Let us Find Out.
Did I Achieve My Soul Purpose?
- The World Reversed Second Card Drawn suggesting that I came very close to it but still have some unfinished business to complete. I should be pleased with that result as I was so close. What happened though?
- Judgement Upright Seventh Card from bottom of Deck.
Note – This suggests that I heard and answered the call of my Soul Purpose from within at quite an early age. I believe that was when my personality developed into The Knight of Wands Upright. Full of positivity, enthusiasm, principled, fearless and ready for action, determined to be everything positive my Father wasn’t. Wanting to be a leader who earned respected from all instead of demanding it. I probably volunteered to sign up for battle and possibly acted heroically at the time, protecting and defending towns, villages, individuals. I would have been filled with strong convictions and was strong in mind and body. I wanted to prove to myself and to all around how strong and powerful I was. I believe I got these qualities from my mother The Queen of Wands who I sense encouraged me to get away from the influence of my Father as soon as I could before he destroyed me altogether or turned me into him. She is the one who believed in my abilities and kept me strong. I was my Mother’s Son for sure. Out of the jurisdiction of my Father I obviously grew, and with new-found freedom became a totally different person to the young Reversed Page of Swords, who would have been nervy, insecure and lacking in self-confidence and self-belief. He would also have been emotionally suppressed and angry. My mother probably believed I would eventually turn into him if I was to stay around too long. Maybe I was already developing traits that she did not like.
I certainly took on my mission but now I need to know how I failed to achieve ultimate success with my Soul Purpose when I was so close to it. The Emperor Concerns me as he walks a very fine line between being a strong and powerful leader, protector and defender, and that of a rigid, controlling and regimental figure who can easily slip into the Reversed King of Swords mode quite easily if he does not watch himself. With The Reversed Knight of Swords, Reversed King of Swords, The Emperor and The Chariot, we have a lot of Male Energy. Having The Queen of Wands as a Mother Figure also introduces quite strong personality traits that may have been akin to masculinity as well The Queen of Wands would think nothing of riding into battle alongside her son should she feel the cause is just. She is as fearless as her son and would not let her femininity hold her back regardless of the era she lived in. Isabella of Castile raised her children on battle fields. She rode out leading her armies into battle in full armour that had been made especially for her. I don’t see any strong feminine/loving/gentle influence around me in that life-time.
Now let me look at the Various Areas of My Life so that I might gain some information as to the Events that occurred.
Wands Events of My Life – Action, Movement, Travel, Drive Ambition
Early Stage – Two 0f Wands (II) – Definitely wanted to get away from home. Looks like it was a monied background. I wanted to travel and possibly get away from my Father. The Walls of my home were closing in on me and I wanted to see the world and be a part of it. Leaving my Mother at the mercy of my Father caused a dilemma for me and I believe I struggled with the decision.
Mid Stage -The Seven of Wands (VII) – Aha, now I see my self in battle. I am either defending myself from attack or learning how to use weaponry by my tutors. I am definitely seeing a pattern forming in relation to my lifestyle. I look like I am being trained for battle, to become a Soldier or Knight. I am putting a lot of effort into it and taking it very seriously. I am determined to be the best.
Latter Stage – The Nine of Wands Reversed (IX) – Now we are beginning to see the effects of long-term conflict. Am I looking for battles to fight now. Have I become the aggressor or am I just plain worn out by it all. Do I think that everyone is out to get me, to steal my throne (The Emperor)? Is there a Contender to my Throne or position of power? Is the enemy at the gate or even sitting at my dinner table? Have I not had enough of war and fighting or am I making a last stand to defend my people? Have I nothing or no one else in my life to distract me from constant conflict and battle. Am I fighting internal or external battles. Is there a mission that should be given to someone younger. Maybe I am too old to take on the task but because of my known stubborn nature, want to ride out on this mission myself. Is it very personal to me. Am I trying to go it alone? Does anyone else know what I am doing? I feel I may be wounded or have been suffering from old injuries. Certainly, I am not as strong and able-bodied as I once was, but what I still have is incredible stamina and fortitude, or maybe just pig-headed stubbornness and bloody-mindedness. Am I constantly battling the ghost of my Father, trying to be the man he wasn’t, yet wanting to make him proud of me at the same time? Something tells me I haven’t learned from my mistakes in the past and that there is no talking to me. What have I turned into? Maybe I feel I have to take this on myself as no one else can be trusted, or this last battle is the ultimate battle and is necessary to achieve my Soul Purpose. I look nervous and anxious, and as if I am waiting to be attacked at any moment. There is some evidence of support and allies but maybe they are too far away to be of help or it is too late? Maybe I have alienated all. Maybe there is no one to trust and I know I must find to the bitter end? Should I have tried to make peace with whoever the enemy was, find another solution instead of constant battle and competition? This Card is telling me that I have taken several knocks and blows over the years but I have got up from each one of them and made a comeback. Something tells me that I thought I would be able to keep doing the same, that I thought I was invincible. I wasn’t going to get up again after this battle. I had fought one battle too many but perhaps that is how I wanted to go out, fighting?
Cups Events of My Life – Emotions, Relationships, Happiness, Love, Marriage
Early Stage – Ace of Cups Reversed – Not surprised here as judging by The Reversed Page of Swords having a Reversed King of Swords as a father, life was probably miserable. Lack of love, comfort and happiness. The Queen of Wands as a Mother, although wonderful, would not be great at expressing loving emotions to her children. I sense a deep sadness here in childhood and growing up. Lack of hugs, kisses and cuddles. I am also sensing I am an only child. I believe my mother had conception problems after giving birth to me.
Mid Stage – Eight of Cups Upright (VIII)- I eventually left when I was old enough to get out. I do sense a terrible void in my life then and not understanding what love and real happiness was. I believe that is why I found life as a soldier or warrior filled the void and that became my big love. If there was a marriage I sense it did not last or that I spent as much time away from home as possible. There was no love there. I feel a massive sense of disillusionment or lack of understanding in this area of my life.
Latter Stage – Three of Cups Reversed (III) – Definitely lonely in the later stages of life. I sense there were few friends that could be relied on. Maybe enemies disguised as friends. Plots and Intrigue. Deception and hidden agendas. There seems to be have been no fun or joy. What happened to The Knight of Wands and all his friends? Was it all about work and battle as I matured into The King of Wands? Did I lose my sense of fun? Was I lonely for love but did not really understand the meaning of it? Was it all just hard work at the end of the day?
Swords Events of My Life – Conflicts, Stresses, Tension, Thought Processes, Intelligence,
Early Stage – Three of Swords (III) This backs up my theory of showdowns between my mother and father as a child. Power Struggles and vicious arguments. The Three Swords feel like the deep sadness of the Reversed Ace of Cups and Eight of Cups, that I probably carried with me through life. Angry words, verbal abuse and put downs as a child. It is all there. Total unhappiness that was never allowed to be aired and healed.
Mid Stage – Two of Swords (II) Closed off and quite cold emotions. Protection from getting hurt. Would not speak to anyone about my problems. Psychological Armour. Mother probably saw the emotionally cold state set in, similar to my Father. She would have been anxious to get me away from it developing further. Needed to talk about my feelings but probably could not verbalise them. Something in me was damaged psychologically but I was managing at this stage, being The Knight of Wands to avoid facing or dealing with it. I would have kept myself busy and moving instead. I had other, more interesting and exciting things to be thinking about.
Latter Stage – Four of Swords (IV) I feel there may have been an injury in battle. Quite a serious one. Maybe that is how I died? Have decided to Pull a Major Arcana Card to see if I can find out any further information about my suspicions. The Card Drawn is The World Reversed. Is this how I left the World or is it telling me that this is why I failed to achieve my Soul Purpose? If I did not die on the battle field but was seriously injured, did I lose the power to the opposite side? Did I lose my position? Did I lose the battle and have to concede to defeat. Was I trying to prevent some tyrant or dictator seizing power? Did I let my people down. Did I act alone without asking for help? Could it have turned out differently if I have not been so impulsive? Had everyone turned against me? Then again, maybe the Four of Swords is suggesting the Two of Swords finally catching up with me. Was my personality beginning to turn? Was I becoming too aggressive? Was psychological stress or dysfunction beginning to set in? I should have retreated and given thought to what to do next but with The Reversed Nine of Wands from earlier, I feel I just marched right in without thinking things through or maybe giving myself time to calm down or let high emotions settle. I do feel I acted alone or listened to very poor advice. Maybe everyone felt it was time for me to step down and let others take over but I refused to let go of the Reins. Maybe the power of The King of Wands, The Emperor and The Chariot eventually became larger than life itself and was ultimately my undoing? Had I lost my way and forgotten what I had come here to do?
Pentacles Events in Life – Material Wealth, Financial Status, Work Ethic, Health
Early Stage – Ten of Pentacles (X) – As I guessed. From a monied background. Old Money too and a Powerful Ancestral Name.
Mid Stage – Ten of Pentacles (X) – The Old money and wealth continues. I am from a family of power and influence. My Family Crest is carried out into battle.
Latter Stage – Ten of Pentacles Reversed (X) I have lost my wealth, position and power. Does this fall into line with my suspicions regarding dying in battle? Did I lose everything to the enemy? Were my family and people destroyed by a tyrant just like my Father? Is that how I ultimately failed to achieve my Soul Purpose? Did my impulsive actions, acting alone when I was not strong enough, cause our downfall? Was I keeping my eye on the Big Picture all the time and not realising that the power of the enemy was growing, and possibly among my own people who were hungry for that very power that I possessed. However, my power would have been positive and constructive. Did my actions allow power to fall into the hands of those intent on control and misery? With the Reversed Nine of Wands in the background I feel I may have made a terrible mistake, acted hastily or over-reacted to a situation? I feel at that stage I was mentally confused, stressed, and possibly not in full control of my actions. Maybe I changed from The King of Wands Upright in my final years?
I have decided to pull a Court Card for this purpose. To see who I was when I died. I draw The King of Swords Reversed. Oh no, after all the determination to not be like my Father I ended up like him. Surely there must have been a reason for this? What happened in my life to change my personality so? I know, it was always going to be there in the background as it was in my genes and blood but after being The Knight of Wands and The King of Wands, why did I turn so ugly? I very nearly achieved my Soul Purpose (The Emperor) so something must have happened quite close to the end of my life to change me so. I will have to find out why in Part II of The Past Life Tarot Reading.
